Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My dog Millie had been drinking more water than normal. I got her blood checked and the vet said the signs were leading them to believe it was Cushings disease. They wanted to do an expensive test to confirm the diagnosis.

Cushings is caused by a tumor stimulating the pituitary gland causing the adrenal glands to produce too much cortisol. It can also be caused by tumors on the adrenal glands directly causing them to produce too much cortisol.

I had learned that Frankincense oil was known for reducing/dissolving tumors. So the first 4 days I put it on top of Millie's head where I thought her pituitary might be and on top of each adrenal located over the kidneys and on the tips of her ears and on the bottom of her back paws. She hated it. But after four days her water intake had reduced to about normal.

I would put the oils on her the same way about every other day for a couple of weeks and then cut back to just on top of her head and over the adrenals every once in a while. Now I just put it on her head and adrenals about once a month or so.

I never got her tested for Cushings disease to confirm it. But she has no symptoms like before and is very happy and energetic so I'll just stick with the Frankincense oil. I'm not saying she had Cushings or it had cleared up, but the symptoms she suffered from are gone whatever they may had been from.

I am so very grateful for Frankincense oil.
